easing later this year. that's the word from federal reserve chairman ben bernanke-- if the economy continues picking up at its current pace. two reasons for the optimism--the rebounding housing market...and the end of widespread government layoffs. fed chairman ben bernanke pointed to an historic indicator of good times coming---the housing market is bouncing back. "it's not only creating construction jobs, it boosts value and improves consumer sentiment." and public sector layoffs seemed to have run their course. the fed chairman says if employment grows at its current pace-- roughly 200-thousand jobs a month and inflation goes up but no higher than 2%, the government's bond-buying program known as quantitative easing may be scaled back later this year and into 2014.

is a lot of the artificial stimulation the market has gotten by ben bernanke's policies, it's starting to come to roost. and our fund feels like the stock market right now has a correction in mind somewhere in the 5% to 7% range over the next quarter. i could look for somewhere in the course of this week about 1,000 points to the down side. if i was a retail investor, i had some profits, i would go into monday morning thinking let me take some profits off the table, if the bubble starts to burst, there will be great opportunities down the line. but the prevailing opinion is always sell it in may and go away. we're in june. if you haven't sold yet, i'd be selling monday. >> 1,000 points. gary, are you buying or selling? >> well, first of all, john just scared the heck out of me. so i don't think -- well, okay. i agree with him in part of it. do i think there is more down side. i don't think it's going to be another 1,000 points down. that would take us below dow 14,000. i think that's probably a pretty safe stopping ground. in direct answer to your question, yes, i started buying late t
